Lab Final Ornithology: SJWS

Today was our last field trip for ornithology. We had our lab final, walking around the ponds and the creekside looking at species to identify. There was an exotic weaver finch by the San Joaquin creek that startled the heck out of me when the glowing orange-y yellow feathers hit the light. It was a great trip and a great class and I am very sad that I don't get to use schoolwork as an excuse to go birding, I was really getting used to regular trips with people instead of birding by myself all the time... ;)
